"I just wanted to express my thanks to you and the staff at Valle, AZ for making our visit very special and memorable... The bottom line is that Planes of Fame is more than the planes and the flying, it's the great people working for you that make it an experience my family and I want to repeat. We appreciate the work you have done over many years to preserve our aircraft heritage and I have to think the Good Lord has blessed Planes of Fame because He wants that too.

Events and Outreach

Event Saturdays

These events are generally held on the first Saturday of every month in conjunction with the Living History Event Days at Planes of Fame Air Museum. While the Living History Event is being held in the Maloney Hangar, special events are held in the Aviation Discovery Center for our younger visitors. While the activities vary from month to month, visitors can anticipate a range of hands on activities and exhibits to engage, inspire and educate young aviation enthusiasts. Please check the Planes of Fame Facebook page for the latest details on upcoming events.

Educators’ Afternoon Preview

The Planes of Fame Air Museum invites K-12 teachers, principals and homeschool educators who have not yet visited our facilities to experience the educational value of a field trip to our unique museum located at the Chino Airport. The free Educators' Afternoon Preview is held the first Tuesday of every month from 3:30 pm to 5:00pm. Educators are free to walk the facilities and visit the Aviation Discovery Center and meet our Education Coordinator to get information about the museum's school-tour program for the coming school year. Educators must present their district employee badge or appropriate identification at the Gift Shop to be granted entrance to the afternoon preview.
